Two sororities to join NKU Greek Life

Northern Kentucky University Greek Life members have chosen two sororities that will be joining campus. Chi Omega will join in spring 2012, and Alpha Omicron Pi will join in spring 2014.

“They’ve already identified the chapter adviser and the national president lives right across the river,” said Assistant Director of Student Life Kim Vance.
Chi Omega was founded in 1895 and is the largest sorority in the world, according to its website. The organization boasts 300,000 members and 173 collegiate chapters.

Alpha Omicron Pi was founded in 1896, and has chapters across the US and Canada, according to its website.
The Office of Student Life staff began to consider adding sororities “a few years ago,” Vance said. Three different sororities gave presentations Oct. 25 through 27, and NKU’s Pan-hellenic community chose the two groups that would join.

Vance said Student Life administrators decided to add sororities because of an increase in new recruits.
The two sororities join five other women’s fraternal organizations.
